Re: Do you have any ideas on how to improve Everything 1.5 syntax?

Can you show some examples for
preprocessor in the multi-file renamer,
how it will look like (according to the current syntax), for what you think will be some of the most common tasks?

Re: Refresh Button

I think a Home button will be more useful than the x button ("clean the search").
btw, I'm using the focus shortcut "Focus Search Edit" (Ctrl+F / Ctrl+E), and almost not need a x button for "clean the search".

Everything has no indexes bar/sidebar with checkboxes where you can Add/Remove indexes easily by Check/Uncheck.
